Once the book of the month has been decided upon, where is the title posted?

Once everyone has read the book, where can the book discussion thread be found?

and

When does the discussion thread start? Not until the end of the month (is that the "deadline" for having the book read?) or does the discussion begin immediately after the book is decided upon and everyone discusses AS they read?

Thanks (sorry if these are silly questions)

Actually, I was going to ask some of the same "ground rules" type of questions. I've never participated in an online book club, but I figure that it will be interesting because the mobileread.com crowd is so well-read and lively. The June adventure book sounds great - and I really appreciate the selection of a public-domain book (probably couldn't get it otherwise).

Is there a general rules or explanation thread - or do I just observe for awhile and then jump in?

If you enter the Reading Recomendations section and filter using the Book Club prefix you can see all the Nomination/Vote/Discussions threads easily.

There is also a Book Club community section where I post the books for each month with links to the treads. I think it hasn't been updated for this last month yet.

The discussion is opened the last week of the month. But, just don't enter the thread until you have read the book because there can/will be spoilers.

Also, if you filter on the Book Club pre-fix you will find the "Official Welcome Thread" which explains how we are working things. I do plan to update the first post in that thread soon since we have "tweeked" the club a bit since that message was created.
